With over 300 employees globally, we’re a young company with some established brands and serious investment behind us. Our future starts now…

What’s the role about?

If you love telling stories through video, and know how to engage and entertain people on digital platforms, we have a job for you.

DO YOU HAVE THESE ESSENTIALS?

  • Strong storytelling credentials; do you believe you can craft narratives that grab and hold people’s attention?
  • An understanding of what people want to watch and share online
